Brother Wolf- Sacred Heart Starburst Pendant
In Stock | STYLE: 001-600-02677
The Sacred Heart universally symbolizes the transformative power of divine love for humanity. The image of the flaming heart surrounded with a crown of thorns while informed by the crucifixion serves as a ubiquitous symbol of Love in popular and secular culture.
The Immaculate Heart of Mary which appears on miraculous medals next to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is pierced with a sword rather than crowned with thorns interlocking the two. While the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus originated in the Middle Ages primarily through the Franciscan mystical devotion of the five wounds of which the wound in Jesus’ heart figured prominently, formalized practice began in 1856 with the Feast of the Sacred Heart celebrated 19 days after the Pentecost and always falling on a Friday.
Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque popularized the devotion when Jesus Christ in her visions, radiant with Love, requested He be honored under the figure of His Heart of Flesh.
While the image of the Sacred Heart appears throughout the Sanctus Collection, we celebrate the healing power of divine Love with a cameo portrait of the Sacred Heart, framed in precious medal and anointed with a sacred stone.

Brother Wolf Religious Jewelry
There is a famous story of St. Francis and a wolf, in which the animal terrorizes the town of Gubbio. When St. Francis finds the wolf, he pleads with him to stop the violence by calling him, “Brother Wolf.”
This story is where Brother Wolf jewelry got its name. “The line originally was inspired by St. Francis and his love for animals,” says Tesauro. Brother Wolf leads the pack in offering religious-themed medallions, each designed and handcrafted to provide customers a meaningful relationship with their jewelry. Family-owned and run, Brother Wolf relies on the virtue and symbolism behind each piece it creates.
Jonathan Tesauro of the Brother Wolf family gave some insight into the inner workings of the company. “We believe in fashion with meaning and that style is a virtue. Those are the two very important aspects to Brother Wolf.”
Brother Wolf takes a truly unique approach to jewelry design. Tesauro says, “Our designer travels the world and finds inspiration from different places. Relics found in remote shops far off the beaten path will inspire a design that will then be in the line.”
When asked about the process of making the pieces, he says, “Once we have a design, we do extensive research on the saint or mystic that we’re featuring. We want to know as much as possible so that we can write the story and share it with our customers. Each handmade piece comes with a card that explains the history and meaning.”
Brother Wolf takes a unique approach to giving back as well. Each piece is associated with a different virtue and social cause. “We choose charities based on the piece that will work with us and support our mission,” says Tesauro. “For example, the Sacred Heart piece represents love and supports Mercy Corp. Our Lady of Lourdes represents hope and supports the American Heart Association.” A full list of the pieces and their charities can be found on the Brother Wolf website.
